With the 4th pick in the draft, the Vikings select…
Matt Kalil, offensive tackle, USC (6-7, 295)
The Vikings did a nice job moving back one spot and still getting their guy. Kalil isn’t an elite prospect and needs to continue to get stronger. However, he’s got the frame to do so and is a “plus” lateral athlete for the position. He should be able to anchor the blind side from day one and mature into one of the league's best.
